The Centre for Integrated Biowaste Research (CIBR) is dedicated to finding sustainable reuse options for New Zealand's biowaste.
The CIBR is a formal partnership between ESR, Scion, Landcare Research and Cawthron Institute. Other collaborators are Lowe Environmental Impact, University of Canterbury, Northcott Research Consultants, and Kukupa Research.
How can we re-use it and what are the challenges of reusing biowaste? You can find answers to these questions and other useful resources about biowaste under Find out more.
We work with central and local government, regional councils, communities and stakeholders who are looking for better biowaste re-use options.
We combine your local knowledge with the expertise of our four specialised research groups to develop sustainable biowaste re-use solutions that are appropriate and safe for you and your community.
